As businesses are reopening, we hope you continue to follow CDC guidelines in protecting yourself during the COVID-19 pandemic. We care about you and your wellbeing.
Dr. Evans has a special outreach project that calls for your participation. Watch the video to hear from our Senior Pastor.
Sometimes it feels like hell is winning, even in the church. Division in and among churches is more prevalent than ever. The good news is we have God’s promise that the gates of hell will not prevail against His church.
Join us Sunday, May 17, at 10 am when Dr. Evans addresses The Importance of the Church from Matthew 16:13-19. Tune in to our Sunday worship broadcast on:
Here are your weekly reminders:
Reopening Our Worship Center
Although businesses are reopening, OCBF will not hold mass gatherings as of yet. In this COVID-19 environment, we want to use wisdom in how we carefully, deliberately and progressively open our church facilities for physical gatherings. The protection of your health is a top priority for us.
Invite People to Church
As Dr. Evans shared in the video, please invite friends, family and/or co-workers to church, especially those who are unsaved or carnal believers. Use technology to watch the Sunday morning broadcast together. Afterwards, use Zoom or some other technology to engage them in a discussion about the sermon and be prepared to share Christ with any unbelievers.
Become a Member
Very soon OCBF will conduct online pre-membership classes. If you know anyone who has expressed interest in joining our church, please have them visit ocbfchurch.org/membership.
